shuts off, push the switch pedal once and unplug the cleaner. Check the cleaner for a possible source of overheating such
as a blocked hose or clogged filter. If these conditions are found, fix them and wait at least 30 minutes before attempting to
use the cleaner. After the 30 minute period, plug the cleaner back in and turn on the switch. If the cleaner still does not run,
call a Eureka Service Station.

HOW TO MAINTAIN
The paper bag and filter play a very important role in the efficiency of the vacuum cleaner. The purpose of the paper bag is
to trap dirt and at the same time the paper must be porous enough to allow air to pass through. If the paper bag or filter
become clogged, no air can pass through the cleaner and no cleaning takes place regardless of how powerful the unit. To
keep the cleaner operating at maximum efficiency, change the dust bag frequently and clean the filter as necessary.
Some fine particles can restrict airflow very quickly and will decrease performance even before the bag appears to be full.
When vacuuming carpet fresheners or cleaners, plaster dust, or similar fine substances, clean the bag and filter more often.
NOTE: Turn off the power switch and disconnect electrical plug from wall socket before
changing dust bag. Never use the cleaner without a dust bag or filters.
HOW TO CHANGE DISPOSABLE DUST BAG
Open cleaner cover.
Pull the sliding tab to remove
dust bag.
Insert new dust bag by sliding the bag
slots into the holder. Close cover.
Use GENUINE EUREKA replacement bag, 61230. NOTE: Lid will not latch if dust bag is not installed.
HOW TO CHANGE MOTOR FILTER
Open cleaner cover.
Remove filter and
covering strip.
Important: Insert new filter into
original covering strip. Then
install filter with covering strip
securely in place. Close cover.
Use GENUINE EUREKA replacement motor filter, 61263. The motor filter can be cleaned. Run under water and allow to
thoroughly air dry. NOTE: Lid will not latch if dust bag is not installed.
HOW TO CHANGE HEPA FILTER AND FINAL FILTER
Final Filter
(underneath
side)
Open filter cover by lifting up on
latches and pulling filter cover out
and away from the cleaner.
Replace old HEPA filter with new
HEPA filter. Clean or replace final
filter in filter cover and close cover.
Ensure the filter cover is
securely fastened.
Use GENUINE EUREKA HEPA filter, 60286A. We recommend the HEPA filter be changed every 6 months or as needed.
Use GENUINE EUREKA Final filter, 61262. The final filter can be cleaned. Run under water and allow to thoroughly air dry.

How To Change or Clean Washable HEPA Filter and Final Filter (Model 6999 only)
Final Filter
(underneath
side)
Open filter cover by lifting up on
latches and pulling filter cover out
and away from the cleaner.
Clean or replace washable HEPA
filter. Clean or replace final filter in
filter cover and close cover.
Ensure the filter cover is
securely fastened.
Use GENUINE EUREKA washable HEPA filter, 61053. To clean filter rinse dirty
side of filter under warm, low pressure water being careful not to get the clean side
wet (this increases drying time). Do not put damp filter back in vacuum cleaner.
Allow to thoroughly air dry.
Use GENUINE EUREKA Final filter, 61262. The final filter can be cleaned. Run under water and allow to thoroughly air dry.
How to Replace Worn Belt or Light Bulb
NOTE: Disconnect power cord and wands from electrical hose before replacing belt or bulb. Belt pulleys can become
hot during normal use. To prevent burns, avoid touching the belt pulley when servicing the drive belt.
